Tech Shift: The Chicago Architecture Foundation's "Chicago: City of Big Data"

Living in a city like Chicago means you’re always generating data. That tweet you sent out or the pothole you reported to the city? It’s all being collected, and being used to shape the city around you. The Chicago Architecture Foundation is exploring what this means for the future of cities in a new exhibit opening Thursday called “Chicago: City of Big Data.” CAF's Ingrid Haftel and Nikki Snodgrass join us in studio. We're also joined by John Armstrong, North American Leader for IBM Interactive Experience, whose group built one of the pieces for the exhibit.
